Barks Publications – Paid CRM/Database Marketing Intern

Location: Chicago, Loop


About Us

Barks Publications, Inc. provides information to the electromechanical industry and related manufacturing markets (renewables, automation, plant management, utilities, municipalities, etc.) We publish Electrical Apparatus magazine, a B2B publication for those who design, specify, use, operate, maintain or repair electrical equipment. Other products include books, the Electro-Mechanical Bench Reference (an annual buyer’s guide/directory), Direct and Current weekly e-news, and the Electrical Apparatus podcast.

About the Position

We have a database of about 16,000 subscribers to Electrical Apparatus magazine. This database has never been managed with any attention to CRM or marketing potential. We would like to find an intern who enjoys working with and analyzing data, who is curious about and interested in the intricacies of American manufacturing and publishing, and who has good research, telephone and social media skills. Our goals are to clean the data so that it is up to date and complete, then use it and other research to find new subscribers and advertisers.The data is housed online and downloads as a csv file, which can then be imported into any data analysis software. We currently use MS Excel, also have FilemakerPro and could consider other software if desirable. The intern will be supervised by the Publisher but will also interface with the Advertising Director, Circulation Director and other members of the editorial staff. Number of hours and start date is flexible. This is a paid position.

Apply by sending cover letter and resume to Kate Stevenson
